If we could sum up ASTi's core philosophy in just one sentence, it would be:
With such an all-encompassing statement, you may wonder: "What does it actually mean?"
There are several important extensions of this idea that are central to our company, our personality, and the way we do business.
Employees are extremely valuable corporate resources, and should be treated with respect and trust. In our business, we depend on our employees' always acting in the company's best interests. As such, your relationship with ASTi is regarded as a durable one, not one that will be ended just to maximize some short-term profit goal.
Like we said before, ASTi puts a premium on trust. As an employee, we expect that you will make a sincere and mature effort to try to earn your salary. Although this is a hefty expectation, it also to your advantage, as it allows us to give you more wiggle room elsewhere. This means that you will be authorized to make decisions for the company (and that there won't be any need for timesheets). See also: "Life at ASTi".
Without our customers, we would not exist. And our customers only continue to buy our products because we have developed a reputation for being responsive, ethical, and reliable. Working with ASTi ensures customer success and end-customer satisfaction. Our commitment to customer support has—in turn—only added to the growing constituency of ASTi advocates out there in the user community.
